Study Thai on line

I am currently studying Thai with Mr Jom Nawa. Before the Coronavirus we met at school for the lessons. Now we study online. I am sitting at my home and so do all the others. We are 4 to 5 people in class now and it works very well. I have been trying to learn Thai for a number of years and for a number of different teachers but khun Jom is outstandingly the best.

Translated by Go Overseas:
Thai study with Jom via Skype, before meeting him I tried for a couple of years to study alone or by being helped by Thai friends but with Jom in four months I learned more than in the previous two years of study.

The lessons are interesting, engaging and never boring. I am learning Thai quickly and almost without realizing it. Jom uses many methods to help memory remember new words and grammatical rules, he also explains the various aspects of Thai culture in relation to the language and this is very useful for understanding how to adapt my way of speaking to the context in which I find myself.

Original Version:
Studio Thailandese con Jom via Skype, prima di incontrarlo ho cercato per un paio d'anni di studiare da solo o facendomi aiutare da amici thai ma con Jom in quattro mesi ho imparato più che nei precedenti due anni di studio.

Le lezioni sono interessanti, coinvolgenti e mai noiose. Sto imparando in thai in modo veloce e quasi senza accorgermene. Jom utilizza molti metodi per aiutare la memoria a ricordare nuove parole e regole grammaticali, inoltre mi spiega i vari aspetti della cultura thai in relazione alla lingua e questo è molto utile per capire come adattare il mio modo di parlare al contesto in cui mi trovo.

Highly Recommended

I’ve been studying Thai at M.Y.L. for 8 months. It’s been so enjoyable I’ve signed up for another 8 months. In addition to studying conversation I’ve been studying reading and writing. I thoroughly recommend M.Y.L.

In order to learn Thai a transliteration system is necessary at the beginning. The one used at M.Y.L. is very natural for English speakers to read. I’ve tried a few of these systems, some of which require studying before studying Thai itself. The one used at M.Y.L. is the best I’ve seen.

There are lots of courses on offer, from conversation only to advanced reading and writing. The teachers are certified, speak excellent English and keep a good balance between education and fun. Classes have about 6 students, usually of different nationalities.

Of course, to study Thai you’ll need an Education Visa, which the school can arrange. M.Y.L. has a good relationship with Samui Immigration and will only issue genuine visas.

If you have no intention of learning Thai but want an extended holiday in Samui don’t go to the school and expect them to apply for a fraudulent visa. They won’t! You’re wasting their time, your own time and making it more difficult for genuine students.

However, if you’re a genuine student you’ll learn Thai, meet new people and have a lot of fun in the process. I can thoroughly recommend M.Y.L. school.

Fantastic Learning Experience

My wife Vicky and I have been learning Thai with Jom and Mind for past 3 months. It has been a humble and most motivation experience with learning a new language. Our personal goal is to be able to speak and read fluently as we would like to be settled here in thailand with a business. Mind Your Language provides us both with the motivation and confidence to converse what we have learnt each week with local Thais. We finish our lessons each week learning and practise our learnings in our every day day life. Jom and Mind has the ability and patience to repeat and ensure a word or pronunciation is proper. The ability to converse with the locals, we can see the immediate reaction of appreciation and openness in sharing with us their thoughts besides getting through the basics in a foreign land. The learning journey has been most professional, tailored, relatable and motivational.

Apprenez le thaï rapidement et avec plaisir !

Mind Your Language est une école sérieuse et très bien organisée, dont le personnel enseignant et administratif est très disponible et à l'écoute. La méthode d'enseignement apporte de bons résultats en peu de temps, ce qui vous permettra de vous débrouiller rapidement lorsque vous rencontrer des gens qui ne comprennent pas l'anglais. L'ambiance est sympathique. Il existe plusieurs formules allant de 1 semaine intensive à 12 mois, permettant l'apprentissage du thai parlé (phonétique) à la lecture et à l'écriture. Les classes comprennent peu d'élèves, ce qui facilite l'apprentissage. J'ai choisi de suivre un cour individuel ce qui a l'avantage de donner de la flexibilité si vous devez déplacer ou sauter un cours en cas d'empêchement. Je recommande Mind Your Language à quiconque veut apprendre le thai en ayant du plaisir.

Translated Review:
Mind Your Language Koh Samui is a really good school, who really cares about their students and really wants to learn how to speak Thai. Always gluttonous teachers who are happy, funny, and possitive. Jom & Chiida are great! Fewer people are allowed to look for. You always feel so welcome to school, Chida and Jom are so helpful.
Can highly recommend this school!!

Original Review:
Mind Your Language Koh Samui är en jätte bra skola, som verkligen bryr sig om sina elever och vill verkligen lära oss att prata thailändska. Alltid jättesnälla lärare som är glada, roliga, och possitiva. Jom & Chiida är toppen! Snällare människor får man leta efter. Man känner sig alltid så välkommen till skolan, Chida och Jom är så hjälpsamma.
Kan starkt rekommedera denna skola!!

Great school with great staff

The school is great. I'm on a ED visa and am taking 8 hours of Thai language classes a week for the next year. The Administrator and Coordinator, Jom and Sharon, went the extra mile to help me acquire the original visa and getting each visa extension so I never had to worry about it. My Thai Speaking teacher, Cheeda, is very helpful and patient with everyone in the class. Not all students are going to learn at the same pace and Cheeda works well with everyone. My Reading and Writing Thai class was very intimidating at first and it seemed I would never be able to learn it. However, as time past I found that repeated reenforcement of the rules just sunk in without me knowing it. I have to thank my amazing teacher Bonus for being patient with me and answering all my questions. I would definitely recommend Mind Your Language School to anyone.

What would you improve about this program?
I would really enjoy some Thai cultural information sprinkled into the lessons. I think it would help with cultural understanding and appreciation of the Thai language.

They make learning fun!

Was so much fun and I learnt so much! I am having a great time practicing my Thai now that I have finished Course 1 - and can't wait to do Course 2!

They use TMC teaching which is really great to get you used to the new words and phrases.

T – Transformation method: reversing sentence structure
M – Muscle memory method: repetition leads to accuracy
C – Combination method: creating meaningful paragraphs

Would wholeheartedly recommend :)
